There is an old Persian saying- “Gar firdaus, bar roo e zamin ast, amin asto, amin ast, amin ast”. It means – if there is heaven on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here. Shalimar Bagh is just one of the most grand Mughal gardens in India, and the lovely water ways and fountains make it just... More

The huge Garden is so beautiful and lovely, filled with lush green grass and trees of all size and shapes. Lots of flowers and fountains are also seen. Maintenance is not good, needs lot of improvement. This place takes you back to Old Bollywood movie times, when Kashmir used to be the hotspot. People throwing litter around.. not so good.... More

This garden is similar to nishat garden but smaller in size. The garden is just 3kms from nishat garden and close to Dallake. The garden is full of fountains. Flowers and trees especially huge Chinar trees. Small market outside the garden is also available for shopping.

Tum aa gaye ho song of Aandhi film was picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Suchitra Sen here. This is small compared to Nishat garden but quiet and serene. There is a 400 year old tree. spent few hours. Don't just touch and go.

The garden was in bloom with a large variety of summer flowers including roses, dahlias, marigolds, zinnias, and other perennials and annuals. The gardens primary appeal is it's combination of water basins and cascading water falls that flow from the back of the garden to... More

The city is gifted and blessed with many wonderful gardens, when i visited it in Feb, unluckily or luckily the Tulip garden had been closed a few days in advance. As we had some time so we visiting the adjoining... More

Shalimar Bagh is the best among the rest. Vast and made on plain area, not on slope like other gardens. You can have a scenic view of flower bed in spring. Preferable time to visit is in the evening during sunset. Architecture is really worth mentioning.
